Are DDoS Attacks Being Scheduled?

Last week I noticed a spike of 15,000 hits.  This is probably a DDoS attack against some PHP code as WordPress is a huge target for such attacks.  As long as you keep systems patched, it usually isn’t an issue.  However, I find this follow up attack very interesting.  The hits match almost perfect (and could actually be the exact same hit count).

The second attack, exactly seven days after the original attack, may indicate that these DDoS attacks are following a schedule.

update:  More of the same today (12/05/2016)), except I’m at 25,000+ hits from a suspicious address (37.187.44.93):

ePrepper is going offline this month and will likely be offline before the end of January 2017, unless I can find someone to either take over the site or migrate its content to. Properly maintaining the site has been taking up too much time and cutting into my family. I would like to see the content of ePrepper get absorbed into a larger site. If you run a blog and are interested using content from ePrepper, please email dan [dot] michaels [at] eprepper [dot] net.
